I keep my tank quite simple by leaving the plants potted but cover the pots with soil this way it is easy to remove the plants for cleaning i clean them once every two weeks but remove feces most days

Green anoles are very fast and easily scared animals so it is better not to handle them.also they are very good predators.some people say if they aren’t always green that they are scared or ill this can be true but my anoles were eating fine and breeding and they weren’t always green
